Bears’ Marshall Is The Center Of Attention

Bears_Brandon_Marshall_2013On Monday at Halas Hall, both quarterback Jay Cutler and Marc Trestman shrugged off a media-mandated Marshall mood check. It was deemed necessary because Marshall left Soldier Field on Sunday with only four catches and 30 yards and a brain spinning with agitation.

“I want to win,” Marshall said Sunday. “I’ve always said I have a nice contract, been to Pro Bowls, made All-Pro. I want to win.”

Cutler was asked Monday whether he’s OK with the attention defenses are paying to Marshall, a dynamic that actually may be aiding the Bears’ quest for offensive balance.

“We’re all OK with it,” he said. “I think we’re getting tired with talking about it, dealing with it. We’re frustrated we’re losing games. I think that’s the biggest issue right now.”
